Street Fighter IV Trailer Analysis

GameTrailers takes a deep look into the Street Fighter IV trailer shown by Capcom at their Gamers' Day. They take a look into it comparing it to the old Street Fighter games, showing the similarities. Its really an interesting watch.

GameStop Sells Customer Steambot Chronicles Demo Disc

Within the depths of GameStop comes the tragic stories of bad salesmen working there. Today, we have another one of those stories.

BobTheFork of NeoGAF went to GameStop to pick up a new copy of Steambot Chronicles for the PS2 that he had seen on the wall one day. He bought the game, and head home to play it on his PLAYSTATION 3.

He didn't really look at the disc much when he put it in his PLAYSTATION 3, because if you look at the picture to the left, it looks just like a normal PS2 game, no? Well he put the disc in the PLAYSTATION 3, and played it for about an hour. He reached a save point finally, but when attempting to save his game progress, the game told him he could not save during the demo and must purchase the full copy.

Upon looking closely at the disc and tilting it to the light, it clearly reads "Not for Resale, Demo Disc". GameStop strikes again! Not only did he purchase it new, but it must have been the last copy, and the seller grabbed the wrong disc. That is why nobody likes the whole "we need to open one game for display" policy. Just get a box.

Red Ring of Death Reference In Ratchet & Clank

If you guys have been playing Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, you may have noticed a little reference to the Red Ring of Death in the game.

After securing the area on Planet Reepor, robot assistance Zephyr disables the block to the entrance, goes inside and starts to hack some machine-like device. While doing so he says "Time to show off my superior online capabilities!" followed by Kronk saying "Too bad your CPU has a 43% failure rate!".

A pretty funny reference, even if you own the console yourself like I do. It seems developers are getting more comical by the day.

Night Note: Big Dro

Subject: You See the Decrease?

I don't know whats going on with these slow post days. It seems every time only a few articles are posted a day, we lose a lot of subscribers. I've said it a million times my fellow readers, it's not my fault that there isn't much news for your PLAYSTATION 3 needs on that day.

The opening of the new site will contain the reviews for NBA 2K8, Buzz! The Mega Quiz, Contra 4, Call of Duty 4, and Time Crisis 4. As we start to get noticed day by day, we will have up reviews for Rock Band, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, and Spiderman: Friend of Foe within a few weeks after the site's opening. And of course, we will recycle our PLAYSTATION Network article on the new site for viewing purposes, hopefully getting Sony's attention.

Anyway, the news of November 24 only contained a mere thirteen articles, but we can't say they weren't interesting. What really caught my attention was the Syphon Filter for the PLAYSTATION 3 along with the Far Cry series coming to the console as well. Odd, as Surfer Girl has stated this all before.

If you guys managed to pick up the first issue of PLAYSTATION: The Official Magazine, leave your thoughts on the new magazine. I think it's very well designed, but the first issue is a little outdated if you ask me. Hopefully issue two will bring on more delicacies. Let's take a look at today's news.
